The chicken because animals were first created. Hope I answered your question.
"And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good" (Gen 1:20-21, KJV)
God created first the chicken. Second, it "brought forth" its kind.
You've got all these proto-chickens running around right - animals that are getting closer and closer to a genetically bona fide 'chicken.' Two of these proto chickens get it on, and produce a fertilized egg, containing the embryo of the first genetic chicken.
A harder question to answer would be why the chicken then crossed the road.
'Cock' (male hen) came first =p Obviously then it was possible that an egg could come. Just kidding
Has to be the egg... all chickens come from an egg.
Two similar birds mated, the female laid her eggs and the outcome was chickens. Think this is called evolution?
Nothing to do with any biblical creation! Oops, this quote will get my answer voted into the minus side!
Well according to the Bible the Chicken came first and was carrying the egg. So technically they both came first but the egg couldn't be a chicken till the chicken laid it and sat on it a few hours. Now the real question should be, What was created first the chicken or the egg and well, there we go again if the egg is in the chicken when the chicken was created, it's technically a tie. And around we go. Seriously, why do we care. They both taste good!
Well there's a clear divide bewteen the creationists and the evolutionists here. If you're a creationist, then you believe that God made a chicken first, which then laid an egg.
But if you believe in evolution (as I certainly do) then it is the egg which comes first. The reason is simple. A bird which could (just) be described as sufficiently chicken-like to be called a chicken, must at some point have been hatched from an egg laid by a bird which was very similar to a chicken, but not quite sufficiently chicken-like, to be called a chicken. Such a change from almost a chicken to a true chicken is a mutational change, and a mutational change can only occur during the formation of a fertilised egg.
Therefore, the first egg which was sufficiently chicken-like to be called a chicken egg, was laid before the first bird to be sufficiently chicken-like to be called a chicken was hatched from the egg.
Therefore, the answer to the question as to which came first, is that the chicken egg came before the chicken.
And I have never written so many chicken references in a single article ever before.

Does the question what came first the chicken or the egg indicate a presence superior to man ?Does the riddle of this question indicate the necessary presence of something that was superior to man (in order to create one or the other in the first place) ?

For the evolution scientists, which came first the chicken or the egg?I don't think this dilemma has been fully explained or explored. All evolution scientists and biologists, please explain...

I think we pretty much decided it was the egg before the chicken. So, the seed came before the apple. But how did the egg and the seed form?????Wondering(Actually,I would say, in the realm of science there is no answer whatsoever.)
